What did The Guardian say about Lytham St Annes beach?

Lytham St Annes is described as being “certainly less busy” in comparison to Blackpool.

The Guardian said: “Lytham St Annes is a couple of miles from bustling Blackpool and is certainly less busy, but it still has a handsome pier with ice-cream shops and fish and chip vendors, plus beach huts you can rent by the day.”

If you’re looking for somewhere to stay in Lytham St Annes, the newspaper recommends The Boot Room which is “set back from the coast and near the Forest of Bowland”.
